We visited my aunt for Memorial Day weekend. We had a lot of fun!

Namine and I practically live in the basement whenever we visit my aunt. She has huge blocks, Lincoln Logs, train tracks, and more.

We usually make a house or castle out of the blocks — and we did make a house this weekend — but we also made something new: a dragon. You really have to squint to see it, and I guess it looks more like a sphinx than a dragon, but we still had fun.

I don’t get to join my wife and daughter in tea parties very often, but the four of us did have one this weekend. We each picked a hat and sipped tea with our pinkies up, as one does.
